Able to collaborate with peers in other functional areas. Areas for improvement exist but management needs to carve out time to facilitate their areas to participate in these activities to benefit continuous and unique projects.

I have worked with Focus a few times as a contractor. I love the place, the people and the work-- I would work with them again in a minute! Felt very valued.
Pros
No micromanaging, lots of professional respect.
Cons
Long, precarious hiring process. I would accept a FT position with them if ever one were available.

I really enjoyed my 5 mos temping at Focus Brands. Inc. It was the first location, I have worked, where they had a full Human Resources Staff. Everyone was so helpful and nice. When any of the restaurants tried new recipes. We could sign up to try them and chose the one we like best. They truly cared about their employees. Before the holidays, they would have short days. You can either leave early or stay on site. They fed you. You could eat, drink, mingle, play lawn games and/or dance to a live dj while you hang out until 5pm. The HR Trainer always scheduled training at 5pm so you are not stuck in rush hour traffic, if you could stay. The building was new and beautiful. Loved when they decorated for the holidays.

This is a fun place to work with a great blend of youth, experience, excitement, and innovation. The company is making moves to compete. It's a fun place to work and your peers have knowledge. The pay is below market value but that is a trade-off

During my tenure at FOCUS Brands the company was going through significant changes including a new CEO. I believe the company is actively trying to improve which speaks volumes.

I would prefer not to elaborate. There are a number of very good and professional people at Focus Brands but the "clicks" that exist make it difficult to advance if you are not "clickish." Thank you.

Great place to work- love the Freestyle machines and free food. Culture is friendly and pretty relaxed, there isn't a lot of opportunity for growth. But, fun place to work, they have a great work-life balance culture.

Sales are down on all brands with no true vision to let the people hired to change paths. Always being micro managed and under cut from parent company. They hire with a smile but dont let you actually affect change with the fictitious title they provide. Seemed to be more inwardly impressed with the google-ish corporate culture of feeling good at work rather than making effective changes to save the business.
Pros
titles given
Cons
communication on work direction

I would have loved to stay at Focus Brands, however, with contractors there is no guarantee of employment. The job was very diverse, fun at time, and face pace. I met some really good people there.
